BACK TO NATURE
“A tired dog is a good dog” says any dog person and “The more I learn about humans, the more I like my dog.” Mark Twain. This is why we spend our lives making sure that our dogs are healthy and strong. A fit body is more apt to fight disease and less likely to sustain common injuries associated with either, play, work or aging. At Sexy Bitch we make good dogs better. From hard working military and police canines to older or obese dogs to the Sexy Bitch going for her next show ribbon.
By providing individualized exercise plans we can help your K-9 prepare for their job or your plus sized pooch cut weight. We can cater to your dogs breed, age, weight, and or fitness level. Starting with lite walks we will assess your dog’s fitness levels and needs. We also require a veterinarian’s assessment to start the journey. From there we can offer a plan to address you pets’ needs such as conditioning, weight loss, weight management, or job readiness and performance. We specialize in a variety of works out from low impact to high intensity workouts for advanced candidates. Our facilities range from individual laps pools to full fledge breed specific course, such as earth dog or motorized lure coursing fields. We focus on not only what you want your dog to do but what they were bred to do.
Low impact aerobics and anaerobic workout plans for plus size or well-aged pets start with self-paced indoor electric walks and swimming. Each exercise session increasing as the animal gets stronger and more adjusted. Each also ends with a thorough rub down. As the workouts progress we offer such exercises as weight pulls, cart drafting, and sled pulls. Many of our routines can be done inside as to avoid the heat for pets that are susceptible to heat exhaustion or over-heating.
Individualized feeding plans help to create a healthy dog from the inside out. Remembering that all canines are descendants of the wolf we strive to feed them as such by feeding high quality Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) diets. All physical health starts from within and being that this is a natural true we think that feeding is as, if not more important than exercise itself. Many of the issues our pets have today are side effects of poor feeding thus many of the problems can be fixed simply by changing what we feed out animals. Take for instance allergies. Many of the allergies that pet owners deal with are from corn and or by-products in the food they feed.
Most people don’t have the time or knowledge to prepare nutritious balanced meals for their pets. Our facility has an on-site kitchen were we can prepare individualized meal specific to your dog’s needs or ailments. These meals can be ordered on site to be prepared while you wait or prepared for a day, week, or month. This approach allows even the pickiest of eaters to be catered to. This way of feeding usually helps get rid of the doggy smell, inching, many digestive issues, and adds a healthy sheen to the coat. It will increase energy and may add years to your dog’s life. As with humans obesity and lethargy can shorten your life, rob you of energy, and kill. “This increasingly common condition decreases a dog's life span, increases its risk for various cancers, and causes orthopedic problems—just to name a few of the possible sequelae.” --Dr. Karen Becker
A tired dog is a good dog. Just like as in humans we see that regular physical exercise helps to relief stress and anxiety, thus reducing issues with chewing, barking, and other issues that people have with their pets and their “bad” behavior. If we look at the beginning of the relationship between man and dog we see that dogs have always had a job. We bred dogs to have different traits and qualities to perform at certain jobs more proficiently.
Unfortunately, many of the jobs that the dogs were bred for no longer exist but the dogs still have and inherited need to do a certain thing. Here at Back to Natural we formulate routines to and challenges to get dogs healthy both physically and mentally by letting them do what it is that they are happy doing. This getting back to nature for a dog is essential to a balanced animal. We cannot expect a herding bred to not herd any more than we cannot expect a hunting dog not to hunt. Once your dog is active doing the thing that he is meant to do, your dog will become more balanced. This can be achieved through routine and training. This routine and exercise will help your dog with anxiety, stress, and pent up energy. For our aged companions exercise is important but less strenuous activity. As we see with humans, exercise and diet keep the body and mind strong, making it easier to enjoy life into our later years. We are less likely to experience atrophy, joint pains, and disease. Pets that are more active keep their youthful spark much later in life and may not need as much veterinarian care for preventable aliments. Diet and exercise alone will not guaranty a longer life but they do make the life lived better. Through offering breed, age, and health oriented exercises and diets we here at Back to Nature are striving to help our dogs live long healthy and happy lives, mind, body, and soul.

Train Your Dog; It Only Has the Ability to Be as Good as Its Trainer!!

...Title: Train your dog; it only has the ability to be as good as its trainer!! I have raised and had dogs all of my life! In my years of training dogs, I have found that a dog only behaves as good as its trainer! A dog is an animal, not a human! Yes, it is smart, however not as smart as a human! It has its advantages, like a sixth sense. But their intelligence is limited to what we teach them, they are subordinate to us humans! Many people think that they can abuse and hit a dog to submission! I however have learned that an animal learns what we teach them. For example, if an animal is abused, they learn to fear us! Not respect and love us! Dogs only react to our teachings. They do not understand what is right from wrong, or when to, or not to. The best training, takes place when they are still a puppy, the sooner and younger the better. It’s like training and raising a child. That is when they are ready to learn. Proper training, starts from day one. Put up a barricade; do not allow them to roam the entire house on the first day. That way you can see when they make a mistake, like urinating, or doing poop! That gives you the opportunity to watch them, and teach them how to become house trained, and let them out before they do it inside. When training, speak softly, when they do something wrong, change your tone of voice! That way, they will learn to listen and understand! When they do something that is not acceptable, just raise your tone of......

My Dog

...Each day as I return from school I am greeted by my pet dog Pluto. His big brown eyes light up with joy. He barks excitedly as he takes the strap of my water bottle in his mouth and runs in to inform mother that I have come. Pluto is a brown Labrador. My father gifted him to me on my birthday. He loves to dig and bury bones in the garden. True to his breed-The Retriever, he later takes it out and eats it. He is very faithful. No outsider can enter our house. He barks so loudly that we all know there is someone at the gate. He doesn't bite but his huge size scares people. When any of us are ill he sits at our bed side looking sad. Most part of the day he sleeps and remains awake at night to guard the house. He makes a good watchdog. The water pond in our garden is his favorite playing spot. He jumps in whenever he feels hot and plays in the water. My mother gets very angry with him. She now has extra work to dry and brush him. My parents regularly take him to the vet to have him de-wormed once in three months. He is also given vaccinations and anti-rabies injections. We regularly remove all parasites and keep him clean to remain healthy. After all the love and the joy he gives us, this is the least we can do for him. Pluto loves to eat fruits like apples and bananas. He is an unusual dog. My mother makes him a soup with green vegetables, chicken and rice every day. He loves milk and special dog biscuits for breakfast. Some days he eats egg too. He is my best buddy, and......

Dogs

...Introduction: It is not unfamiliar to see lots of news that the dogs are treated in inhumane ways. In April this year, two junior high school students in Chunghwa post a video on the internet that they shoot at a chained dog on the street with BB guns, imitating an online surviving game for fun(謝忠義). After hundreds of netizens denounce their behavior, they modify their previous remark and say that they just want to protect themselves from dog’s attack. Besides, according to some shocked news(流浪狗悲歌), animal shelters in Taiwan house about 100,000 stray dogs and more than 60,000 of them are euthanized within a year. Some shelters even drag them brutally and pitiless, euthanize them without using the narcotic, and let them die in strong pain. In recent years, the controversial argument about human’s animal-consciousness is increasing. Seeing so many cases that expose the inhuman way imposed on dogs, some people start to think about the way they treat the dogs and manage to find more appropriate ways to solve these problems. For example, in Taiwan, the government has enacted the law, imposing heavy fines on the ones who abuse dogs in cruel way. Even in Germany, the government legislates for animal welfare in order to reduce the account of stray dogs(蔡喬丹). If violators dump dogs, they have to pay NT 900,000 or may be sentenced 2 years in jail. Recently, people constantly debate on animal protection. Some people think that it’s necessary to get rid of the animals which cost lots of...

...Jesus Ojeda Top Five Guard Dogs There are top five dogs when it comes to guard and protection, according to Cesar Milan these are the top five dogs; the Bullmastiff, the Doberman, the Rottweiler, the German Shepherd and the Belgian Malinois. These dog breeds have characteristics that make them the best choice when looking for a guard or protection dog. The Bullmastiff is an English dog breed obtained by crossing 60% Mastiffs with 40% Bulldogs. This dog breed dates from 1795.The Bullmastiff was used as a game keeper’s do, even though they were fierce and threatening, they were trained not to bite the prey or in case of a house, the intruder. This breed had a darkish color. But when game keeper dogs were not required anymore, people stop caring about the dark color for night camouflage and so the light fawn coloration became more popular.(AKC, “Bullmastiff”) The Bullmastiff is docile and affective but if it’s provoked it becomes fearless. In the case of a guard dog if an intruder brakes into its territory the Bullmastiff wont attack in order to kill the intruder instead it will catch an intruder, take him down, hold him down and start barking to alert its owner. This breed is also good with children; it is intelligent, even-tempered, calm and loyal. The male Bullmastiff has a height of twenty-seven inches and weighs 133 pounds. They can do okay in an apartment if sufficiently exercised. They cannot tolerate extreme temperatures .With a life expectancy of ten years the......

...Dog Swimming a. importance of swimming Just as swimming for people is recognized for its conditioning and therapeutic value, so has it been recognized for “man’s best friend” -the dog. For dogs that are overweight, need conditioning, or have disabilities that make normal exercise painful or inappropriate, swimming can provide an excellent alternative or supplement to ground-based programs. Also, swimming can provide dogs excellent rehabilitation therapy, aerobic conditioning, exercise, relaxation, interaction with other dogs and great of fun! b. how to swim Dogs, like all animals, have the natural ability to swim but generally have to learn water confidence before a specific swimming program can be developed. There are two swimming pools in our company. A training pool provides the initial swimming introduction and allows the dog to gain their water confidence. The main pool allows the dog to swim in 30 yard laps or to swim freely to retrieve, train or just swim for the fun of it. Swim Center staff performs the initial swimming of the dog, but owners are encouraged to take over once the dog has graduated from the training class. Dogs wear a chest harness for support and are walked down a gentle sloping ramp into the water. For dogs with paralysis or inability to walk, they are gently lifted and placed into the water and supported by the harness, or in some cases a flotation device may be used, while they develop their swimming stroke.

...enlgish 921 potty The dog is a loving companion to a man. He is happy to go everywhere with his master. He shows his affection for his master by wagging his tail and licking his hand or face. Dogs were not always like this. Overtime humans have domesticated dogs into making them loving pets. At one point dogs were able to pee wherever they want, eat whatever they want, and do whatever they want. Now we provide our dogs boundaries and train them to become our best friends. Eating and playing comes naturally to dogs just as it does to humans when they are born. Just like human babies one thing that does not come naturally to dogs is being potty trained. Adding a furry litte friend to the family sounds like a lot of fun and many would not think of it as such a difficult task to do since all dogs do is eat and play which obviously does not need to be taught to then but the hard part comes when it is time for them to relieve themselves and they choose do to this task on your living room floors, bedrooms, and bathrooms. For most dog owners who have little to no dog experience potty training can be a very difficult task to do but I am here to make this job a tad bit easier for you and your furry friend. Potty training your dog or puppy requires far more than a few stacks of old newspapers, it calls for vigilance, patience, plenty of commitment and above all, consistency. The first step to potty training is introducing the spot you would like your dog to go potty. Like babies,......

Dogs

...Most people said that dogs are man’s best friend and a great companion. They had been domesticated ever since the beginning of time. They are different breeds of dogs throughout the whole world and in this essay that I’m writing about, I’m going to compare and contrast three unique and one of some kind types of dogs that I chose to write about. They are the Basset Hound, the Chihuahua, and last but not least the Pit Bull. What makes these dogs so similar is that they are the most popular pets in the world. They ordinarily remain loyal to considerate masters, and because of this they have been called man’s best friend. A dog fits easily into family life. When a master tells a dog that it is good, the animal happily wags its tail. But when a master scolds a dog, it skulks away with a sheepish look and with its tail tucked between its legs. Some dogs can herd animals in a farm, and some of them can also serve as watch dogs, or even as playful family pets. Dogs are even trained as guard dogs in peacetime by the U.S. Army and other military services. Because of their keen sense of smell, the police at times to track down escaped prisoners use dogs. Law enforcement agencies also rely on the dog’s acute sense of smell to uncover illegal drugs. And specially trained dogs serve as the “eye” of the blind, guiding steps of their sightless masters around obstacles and hazards. However there are some characteristics that make the Basset Hound, Chihuahua, and the Pit Bull......

How to Dig Up a Tax Deduction

...How Your Pet Can Dig Up a Tax Deduction Dan Caplinger Feb 6th 2015 6:00AM Americans love their pets, and they aren't afraid to open up their wallets to take care of them. Americans spent close to $60 billion on pet expenses during 2014, according to estimates from the American Pet Products Association. Between food, veterinary care and other supplies, it's easy for costs to add up. As the dog days of tax season approach, one question that many people have is whether there's any way they can get any sort of tax break for their pet expenses. As outlandish as it might sound, there actually are some perfectly legal tax deductions you can claim from what you spend on your pets. Before turning to those deductions, let's first take a look at what you can't do with pet expenses. Pet Dependent? Forget About It The most obvious tax break that might tempt you is the personal exemption for dependents, which on your 2014 return will give you a reduction of $3,950 on your taxable income. Certainly, your dogs, cats or other pets rely on you for their survival. But the Internal Revenue Service takes the view that only human dependents can qualify for the valuable personal exemption. Several other similarly enticing deductions also don't work. Veterinary care might cost you as much as a doctor's visit for yourself, but you're not allowed to deduct those vet charges as medical expenses on your tax return. Similarly, if you're traveling on business, you can't write off the......

The Wolf and Dog

...wolf is one of the most misunderstood animals in all of history. Theirs is a proud, yet sad, history. The wolf and dog are different species but yet have so much in common. Dogs were originally classified as “Canis familiaris”, in 1758. However, in 1993, dogs were reclassified as a subspecies of the gray wolf and renamed “canis lupus familiaris.”While it is true that there have been speculations that dogs may have descended from several species of canines, the wolf appears to ultimately be the ancestor of man’s best friend. The dog and wolf both share the same number of chromosomes (78, arranged in 39 pairs).The dog and the wolf can mate and give life to offspring. There are good chances indeed, that in the past the two species may have interbred, whether because of feral dogs may have escaped from being domesticated or because some wolves may have separated from their pack and started looking for a soul mate. At the same time, the outward appearance of wolves and dogs is markedly different. The wolf’s skeleton is higher and has a more arched spine. The wolf’s legs are heavier in build and are usually longer. Dogs and wolves run differently. A dog runs with a loping, almost casual gait, while wolves run in a springing motion with force from the hind legs propelling them forward. One main difference between the wolf and the dog is the mating; a dog can come into heat twice a year while the wolf comes into heat only once a year, usually in the spring. This might......

...Rough Draft Dogs are better equipped in the household families of today, Basenji’s and Rat Terriers are the two best pets that one can own. Most people have a hard time choosing what they think is the best pet for them. Most people want an animal that has some energy but not too much! They also want a dog that can be gentle with them and their children, but can also be protective and a guard dog when the time calls for it. Some people think that size matters when you want these qualities in a pet, but they really don’t! People of today have just been deceived into thinking that way. Basenjis and Rat Terriers carry these qualities without being too big to be uncomfortable or to small that they can’t do their jobs. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are both protective of their owners and are very loyal to them. Families want to have security with their dogs; they don’t want them to be TOO friendly to just anyone but they don’t want them to be too aggressive either. Both animals are very cautious about strangers and though they might not necessarily bite them they will make sure that they are noticed by the intruders. They will make sure that they are in between the strangers and their owners in case they need their assistance. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are very watchful and if they see or hear anything they automatically alert their owners that something is not right. Even if it is something big like seeing someone outside or something small, like seeing another animal. Both......
